A few showers are possible this evening but the threat for severe weather will hold off until early tomorrow morning.
The timing for strong to severe storms has been difficult to pin down and because of this, the window of opportunity spans several hours. Remain particularly weather aware after 6 a.m. until around noon Sunday, especially between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m.
Keep your NOAA weather radios nearby through the night and make sure to have a severe weather plan in place before going to bed Saturday night.
A strong shortwave, a burst of energy associated with an area of low pressure, is expected to advance across the region, triggering a line of strong storms early Sunday morning. The environment will be sufficiently moist and unstable to support storms that could produce damaging straight-line winds and a few tornadoes.
Storms should exit by lunchtime on Sunday, but a few showers may linger into the afternoon. Windy conditions will remain through the day, with sustained winds around 20 mph and gusts up to 40 mph possible. Afternoon highs will reach the mid 70s as skies begin to clear.
A cooling trend will follow Sunday's storms, dropping temperatures into seasonable range by Monday.
